Apple Must Fulfill 10 Resolutions to Achieve a Successful 2013
NEWS ANALYSIS: There is plenty of uncertainty in Apple’s prospects for the next 12 months. The company has to focus on a number of issues if it wants 2013 to be anywhere near as successful as 2012.Apple had a hugely successful 2012. The company watched its iPhone and iPad sales soar, and its Macs gained more ground on Windows PCs than they had in previous years. Meanwhile, Apple’s revenue and profits soared, its stock price hit an all-time high, and it became the world’s most valuable company. As if that wasn’t enough, Apple won a major ruling in its case against Samsung, potentially netting the company over $1 billion in damages. But that was last year. As history has proven time and again, a company’s success in the previous year doesn’t necessarily determine future success. That Apple was successful in 2012 doesn’t mean that 2013 will be as good to the iPhone maker. Only through a dedication to quality, a laser focus on product innovation, acknowledgement of its leadership position and a true understanding of corporate responsibility will Apple be as successful. That’s why Apple must make several New Year’s resolutions and stick with them this year. If it adheres to the following resolutions, Apple should have an extremely successful 2013.

The Retina display is a feature all customers want.
